Earning a high school diploma is a huge milestone. It is the first step a graduate takes toward higher education, the job market, and life in general. Bossier Parish Library’s History Center and Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) have joined forces to help anyone interested in taking High School Equivalency (HiSET) Math.
Enrollment begins on Monday, June 6 at 9a.m. in the History Center meeting room. The classes will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9a.m. to 12p.m. at the History Center throughout the month of June at no charge. For more information call Tiyonda McCoy at 678-6197 or Justin Tison at 678-6405.
In addition Bossier Parish Libraries offer Learning Express 3.0 on the library website at http://www.bossierlibrary.org. Under the menu heading Research & Homework click on Learning Express. That is where you will find test prep modules for Computer Skills, High School Equivalency, Adult Learning, Career, School, College Prep, College Center, and one module in Spanish.
These are all great tools to prepare for a brighter future.
